ZEE5, Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd‘s video streaming service, has announced a partnership with BBC Studios India, the production and distribution arm of the British Broadcasting Company (BBC). The two companies will collaborate to create a slate of new ZEE5 originals in Hindi across genres, with The Broken News serving as the first project.

It is a remake of the popular British television series Press, directed by Vinay Waikul and starring Sonali Bendre, Jaideep Ahlawat, Shriya Pilgaonkar, Indraneil Sengupta, Taaruk Raina, Aakash Khurana, and Kiran Kumar, among others.

“The goal for 2022 is to provide high-quality content across genres and languages.” ZEE5, in addition to expanding its portfolio of Hindi originals, is curating a list of unique stories across formats and languages to create a platform with a variety of options for its viewers. With The Broken News, we are kicking off yet another collaboration with a reputable content studio to bring our audiences interesting and unique story narratives. This collaboration is in line with ZEE5’s strategy to build a portfolio of unique and compelling content for enhanced service value, according to Manish Kalra, chief business officer, ZEE5 India.

The show, according to Sameer Gogate, general manager – of BBC Studios India, will be set in the world of TV news journalism. “The strength of our formats lies in their ability to cross-cultural and linguistic boundaries.” “We hope ZEE5’s Hindi audience enjoys the gripping personal and professional dramas that the characters face under the pressure of a 24-hour news cycle,” Gogate said in a statement.

Mike Bartlett created and wrote the original UK series Press, which is a Lookout Point, BBC Studios, and Deep Indigo production co-produced with Masterpiece. In 2018, it aired on BBC One in the UK and PBS Masterpiece in the US, with the original series taking place in a print newsroom rather than a TV newsroom.
